Coast to Capital sponsorship funding aims to support events that align with the three main strategic priorities that we have identified as being the key opportunities for unlocking growth in the region: skills development, housing and regeneration, and infrastructure investment.
Within these strategic priorities funding is aimed at supporting events that will build capacity to deliver growth in the Coast to Capital area; particularly through skills development, increasing entrepreneurship, and encouraging innovation. The funding is focused on events that will provide clear benefits to the Coast to Capital area and that inspire excellence, knowledge sharing, and personal and economic growth in the wider community.
Separate funding is available for direct business support and enterprise education. Please contact our Head of Services Malcolm Brabon for further information.
Sponsorship funding is available for applications from public, not for profit, voluntary, and social enterprise organisations to fund events that meet the above criteria. The call will also accept applications from private enterprises that are running not for profit events which clearly meet the criteria.
The sponsorship fund will open for two rounds of calls, one opening on 20th February 2017 and one in September 2017. Applications for funding should be for a minimum of £1,000 to a maximum of £10,000, inclusive of VAT where applicable. There is no guarantee that any funds will be released in the call periods.
All applications are subject to the assessment criteria set out in the guidance notes and will be evaluated by the appraisal panel, which will consist of two members from Coast to Capital and one independent member from outside Coast to Capital and who has no links to any bids. Unsuccessful applicants will be given feedback on their bid and any complaints will be dealt with in line with Coast to Capital’s complaints procedure.
Please submit any questions in writing, we will publish any questions we receive and thier answers on this webpage.
